They're all fixer-uppers
I am taking up my tile floor in the bathroom and I'm going to retile. The tile floor in the bathroom is considerably higher than the hall floor and I found that not only has tile been tiled over tile Which was tiled over tile, but the mortar bed below is really thick. The problem is, my closet flange sits a full 1 3/4" off my plywood subfloor. I was going to use 1/4" hardie and a 1/4" tile. The Flange is cast iron... the flange is going to be too high for me, right? I mean, even I bump up to 1/2" backer it will still be too high, right? What is the highest the flange can sit atop of the finished floor?
